Whole30: Buffalo Chicken Scramble

I have to give a big THANK YOU to Whole30 for making me try new recipes! One best parts of the diet is that it forces you out of your comfort zones (because everything in that comfort zone is non-compliant!) and encourages you to use leftovers!

I have to admit that I have never been a big leftovers person. Maybe I shouldn’t admit that? There is something about them that has never been appetizing to me and I would pass them over for fresher food in the fridge until it was too late to actually eat them.

Welp, you can’t do that on Whole30! I mean, maybe you COULD… but that would just be silly. There are already SO many trips to the grocery store, SO many dishes, and SO much cooking… why would you want to add more when you can save time/energy by eating the food you made yesterday!

This buffalo chicken scramble is PERFECT for a morning when you are running a little late but don’t want plain eggs!

Recipe for the buffalo sauce below. But like any good scramble, this is just 2 eggs per person and some leftover chicken from your fridge!

Buffalo Chicken Scramble

  1. Fire your stove to medium and add in a little ghee to a pan
  2. Add the chicken and begin reheating
  3. When the chicken is about halfway heated, add in a few sprinkles of buffalo sauce to taste. This is a personal preference step – add as much or as little as you like based on how spicy you want it!
  4. While that is heating, crack your eggs in a bowl and whisk together
  5. Pour over chicken in the same pan
  6. Stir until scrambled
  7. Add Salt and Pepper to taste!

Thats it! It is the easiest and takes less than 10 minutes! I garnished mine with green onion and you could add so many veggies to this scramble to make it even more tasty. Onions, tomatoes, and spinach would all be so delicious mixed in!

Whole 30 Compliant Buffalo Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce ( read your label and make sure it is compliant!)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 clove minced garlic

Melt coconut and ghee over medium heat until it has liquefied. While it is melting, mix the hot sauce, apple cider vinegar, and garlic together in another bowl. Once the coconut/ghee has melted slowly add it to the hot sauce mixture! Voila!

What is your favorite leftover meal?
